Sometimes TV is magical, and magical in the most enchanting, uncanniest sense of the word: It makes the impossible possible, bends space and time, and delivers wonders beyond imagination. We do not know exactly how Zack Morris — last seen with blond hair and an oversize cell phone — ended up an extremely good-looking bartender working at some sketchy small-town establishment who knows all about doing the sex with an unhinged drug-dealing mom is this what happens when Kelly Kapowski bleeds you for alimony and you spend two decades palling around with that pervert Screech? It is, however, more intimate than their previous ones, and after the hair-pulling incident at the end of this clip, gets even more intimate, in a sex scene you can find here around the minute mark that is all kinds of butt-biting, belt-whipping, naked levels of raunchy.
With R. Parker also enlightened us on her upcoming run on Broadway, her preference for theater, longing for Weedsand, rather randomly, watching Good Luck Charlie instead of Breaking Bad. You can catch all of that and more after the jump.
When Weeds debuted on Showtime init seemed to burst with quirkiness. Throughout her career, Parker has proven dexterous with complicated, dark figures, from her role as the hallucinating Mormon pill-popper in Angels In America for which she won an Emmy to her Tony-winning turn as the troubled daughter of a disturbed mathematician in Proof. That skill has served her well on Weedswhere each season has progressively raised the dramatic stakes: Season five, which debuted June 8, finds Nancy Botwin pregnant by a Mexican drug lord, and losing her tenuous control over her two teenage sons.
This is it. This is one of the greatest shows ever! Bichir—so famous in Latin America that he's known as the George Clooney of Mexico—made his Weeds debut this season playing the mayor of Tijuana, who becomes intimately involved with Parker's pot-dealing suburban mom, Nancy Botwin.
The result? She also talks about the direction she wants Weeds to go in — less sentimental, less crude, and more extreme dramatically. Mary-Louise Parker has always been fine with the sex scenes in her role as Nancy Botwin, a marijuana-selling suburban mom in the Showtime series Weeds, but she thinks that a recent nude scene of her in the bathtub took things a little too far.
And it has. Though, I should say that my mother never dealt marijuana nor did she ever marry a Mexican drug kingpin. By the time the series ended, I was a senior in college, and I remember vividly how much I wept during the final scene, which is, for my money, one of the great endings in TV.
Mary-Louise Parker wants to set the record straight: She loves being naked. The long takes do not shy away from Botwin's nakedness — both physical and emotional. The More article, which was excerpted online under the ironic headline of "I Like to Reveal Myself," quotes the actress as saying that she didn't think she needed to be naked, and that she fought with the director about it, which made her bitter. Not exactly, says Parker.
Plus, the Weeds star adds, "I look okay for 44". Mary-Louise Parker has always been fine with the sex scenes in her role as Nancy Botwin, a marijuana-selling suburban mom in the Showtime series Weedsbut she thinks that a recent nude scene of her in the bathtub took things a little too far. I was goaded into it.
American fans of TV show Weeds were treated to a bizarre sex scene involving a nude Mary-Louise Parker, her Latin lover and a blood-soaked pillow earlier this week. While the head injury was sustained in a previous scene, the mix of blood and a completely topless Ms Parker was extreme even by taboo-busting Weeds' standards. The year-old has never shied away from nudity since she took on the role - a suburban housewife who resorts to dealing dope to maintain her middle-class lifestyle after her husband dies - in In Weeds, Mary-Louise Parker plays a suburban mother who sells marijuana to make ends meet following the death of her husband.
